Research shows that the first 3 years of a child's life are crucial to his or her future health and well-being. The pregnancy and parenting programs of the Butte-Silver Bow Health Department help provide parents with the knowledge and resources they need to make those first years the best they can be.

Nurse-Family Partnership

Research consistently proves that Nurse-Family Partnership succeeds at its most important goals: keeping children healthy and safe and improving the lives of moms and babies.  Nurse-Family Partnership works by having specially trained nurses regularly visit young, first-time moms-to-be, starting early in the pregnancy, and continuing through the child’s second birthday. Expectant moms benefit by getting the care and support they need in order to have a healthy pregnancy. At the same time, new moms develop a close relationship with a nurse who becomes a trusted resource they can rely on for advice on everything from safely caring for their child to taking steps to provide a stable, secure future for their new family.
